Use of Personal Information
We may use the personal information you provide to (a) allow us to contact you, (b) fulfill requests you make, (c) or, seek your voluntary feedback on website features or content.
We may also use your personal information for internal purposes, including auditing, data analysis, system troubleshooting, and research. In addition, we may use both the personal information you provided and the information your web browser sends to detect users who appear to be causing harm to our sites or to personalize users’ experiences on our sites. If your information will be used for any purpose besides those outlined above, we will specifically inform you and obtain your consent, if legally required. From time to time, we may also make you aware of options to opt out of using or opt in to use certain features.
We retain collected personal information and submissions for a reasonable period of time to fulfill the collection purpose and then delete it from our records.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We regard your personal information as confidential and do not sell it to anyone. We do not share your personal information with other parties with the exception of legal requirements. Accordingly, we may access and disclose your personal information, posts, journal entries, online chats, personal notes, content, or other submissions to our website if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose your personal information and other information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent a violation of our other agreements; to take precautions against liability; to protect the rights, property, or safety of the site, of any individual, or of the general public; to maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; to protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations, or to assist government law enforcement agencies.
Protection of Information
We use technical and organisational measures to protect the personal information we receive against loss, misuse, and unauthorized alteration and to protect its confidentiality. We periodically review our security procedures and consider appropriate new security technology and methods. We also use current encryption technology to encrypt the transmission of data on our log-in pages. However, because we cannot guarantee the complete security of these encryption technologies, please use caution when submitting personal information online.
Where local law permits, you may submit personal information, including contact information about someone other than yourself (in other words, a third party) to allow us to make contact with that person, make a delivery, or otherwise meet your request. The information collected will be used solely to facilitate your request. When providing personal information about anyone other than yourself, you must first obtain the other person’s informed consent if his or her consent is legally required.
If you or someone else has provided us with your personal contact information and you would like to request that we do not contact you further, please follow the unsubscribe or opt-out procedures provided on the specific site, newsletter, e-mail notification, or the like.
